I got a short note from Ray last evening wishing me well and asking for a little of that Texas blue sky we are famous for. Ray’s a photographer in Port Townsend, Washington one of the most picturesque places on the planet.
Everyone knows the Pacific Northwest gets a good amount of rainfall each year (~ 36″) but you’d probably be surprised to learn that Houston receives almost 1-1/2 times more (~54″) than Seattle. We just don’t receive it little by little like Ray does. When it rains here, it’s a gully washer (3 – 4 inches per hour) and then it quits.
